A Natural, Logical Response to DCM Concerns
As the FDA examines grain-free diets and heart disease, consider an all-natural, whole-grain diet high in natural taurine.
An ongoing FDA investigation has raised concerns about a potential link between heart disease (DCM – canine dilated cardiomyopathy) and grain-free diets, low taurine diets and diets relying on peas, lentils, chickpeas, and other legumes for their protein. This is concerning and confusing for many pet owners.
But the logic of nature and many veterinarians suggest that 100% natural diets with whole grains, high natural taurine from animal sources, and low or no legumes are safe and healthy choices for pets.
Nature’s Logic diets are 100% all-natural with NO synthetic vitamins or minerals. Our diets contain whole-grain, non-GMO millet, are high in natural taurine and protein from meat, fish, and poultry, not legumes.
Nature’s Logic new Distinction™ line is a 100% natural diet with NO synthetic vitamins and no legumes. The first ingredient in all Distinction diets is fresh meat or fish. Formulas include: Chicken, Beef, Pork and Sardine.
Nature’s Logic Original diets include kibble, canned and raw frozen options, also made from 100% all-natural ingredients and no synthetic vitamins or minerals. The vitamins and minerals in all of our diets come from 100% natural ingredients and real food, not synthetic vitamin packs.
Our diets are whole grain, with non-GMO millet, which contains less natural sugar than other starches frequently used in pet foods. Plus, millet contains NO gluten, a relatively common allergen for pets.
While the FDA continues to gather data and there are still many unknowns surrounding this issue, here’s what we at Nature’s Logic do know.
A natural, meat-based diet that follows the logic of nature is the best option for your pet.
